Alaska is a state that embraces winter. Ice and snow may make other areas of the country close up shop. But for us, we carry on business as usual – and then some. Traveling around the state in an RV rental from A&M RV Center in December may require a little more prep and planning, but there is so much here to see and do during the winter months. Check out just a taste of Alaska’s frozen adventures that await you.

Ice Fishing

Lakes around Anchorage boast some of the best ice fishing in the state, with plenty of Arctic char, grayling, pike, and even landlocked salmon for the catching. Parks and Recreation regularly monitors the ice thickness on Goose, Jewel and Delong lakes. If a lake has more than 5 inches of ice, it should be ready for foot traffic, but always check conditions before venturing out. It might be helpful to hire a guide if you’re an ice fishing newbie or looking for a particular experience. 

Ice Climbing

If you want to try something more adrenaline-pumping, try ice climbing on a frozen waterfall. Connect with a local guide who can take you to the best places, and who will either provide the gear or point you to a good rental company. 

Ice Skating or Ice Hockey

From indoor, high-competition ice rinks to lakes designated for ice activities, Anchorage offers something for everyone. Some of the lakes are even hot-mopped by the city, giving you a smooth glide. Afterward, stop in one of our gourmet coffee shops or breweries to warm up. 

With so many things to see and do, your Alaskan vacation is calling you. Contact A&M RV Center today at (907) 279-5508 to reserve your motorhome rental. We can’t wait to show you what’s out there.
